Happy CNY of Vacca, which means cow in Latin, the origin of English word vaccine
Happy Chinese New Year of Vacca!
Vacca actually means cow in Latin.
English doctor Edward Jenner used the cowpox virus to make the world’s first vaccine in 1796.
That was the first step to eradicate the once deadly smallpox virus.
Dr. Jenner created the English word vaccine from the Latin word vacca (cow) to show the origin of the savior for humans.
Frank the tour guide hopes that the successful story of vaccine can repeat once again in 2021 or the Chinese New Year of Cow, Ox, Bull or Vacca!
Of course this time people’s rival is the Covid-19!
Let’s take vaccine to achieve the happy Chinese New Year of Vacca or Cow!
